Choosing Breast Cancer Care

If you’ve recently been diagnosed with breast cancer you understand how overwhelming such a diagnosis can be for anyone. You have been given devastating news about your body – news that is likely quite surreal. On top of this news that surely has you in an emotional tailspin, you have been given a lot of information that you have to process on an intellectual level. It’s all very overwhelming and it can be challenging to know where to start. There will be many decisions along the way regarding your treatment and all that is connected to that. But for now the most important decision to make – the decision that will determine all the rest – is choosing the appropriate breast cancer team.

So what do you look for when it comes to choosing a medical team to stand beside you throughout the treatment process?

Breast Cancer Specialty – There are many wonderful cancer doctors around the country and likely in your region. But not every doctor specializes in every cancer. Be sure to choose a doctor and team that specifically specializes in breast cancer. A specialist will be plugged in to all the newest treatments and technologies and will provide you the guidance and expertise you deserve.

Reputation Among Breast Cancer Patients – You will soon find that much of your support will come from others who have undergone treatment for breast cancer – or are currently undergoing treatment. There’s no one who can better understand what you are going through than someone who has experienced breast cancer. Get online and look for breast cancer support groups that can offer you insight into physicians in your area who specialize in treatment for breast cancer.

Your Gut – Ultimately, how you feel with a doctor is what should make your decision for you. It’s important that you feel respected and that your questions are answered thoroughly. The doctor you choose will be a companion to you throughout this challenging journey and you will want a doctor with whom you feel comfortable and at ease.
